I was really upset that I had to wear a wrist band the entire time. The food was awful. I also had to pay for Internet service for each day. Then I was really upset that I had to pay additional amount to have a late check out.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best staff and cheap all-inclusive"
Cheap all inclusive package, small, and it was awesome. It may not be glitzy as the bigger resorts, but it was cozy and private. Even though there were only one restaurant, which you have to reserve before eating (I did it almost every morning of) and only one buffet, it was unlimited. The staff knew my wife and I by the second day and was very pol […] ite. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel was decent. A lot of construction going on. Bed was too hard.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
nice hotel recommended, close to shopping, nice beach, good food, I will stay again in my next vacationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
ants in room and ice was super far and always out. food was ok and pool is not oceanviewGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice quiet hotel"
Could have done without the hard sell for the timeshare that they subjected us to immediately upon arrival. Actually had to get nasty in order for them to leave us alone. After that the hotel was great. They upgraded us to an ocean view room which had a great view and was very clean and comfortable. The bartenders at the pool bar excellent but the snack […] bar sucked. They didn't have the advertised chicken wings or pizza, only hamburgers hotdogs and french fries. Like all the food in the buffet most of the stuff was cold. After complaining they did go in and get some hot french fries. As I said the buffet food was always cold and the choices less than desirable. I've been in many better all inclusives in Cancun food wise. On the plus side they didn't have that pounding club music all the time at the pool and they didn't have to be annoying master of ceremonies trying to get everyone involved in stuff. A good hotel for relaxing or for older people. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel for familys"
Two days was a good time to expend with my family, I will recommend in the future this hotelGenuine Expedia guest review
We had a wonderful time and the staff was very friendly and accommodating.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel for locals"
Pool is tiny wth tons of Mexicans wth their kids ... Must get a special rate to fill hotel internet is horrible alsoGenuine Expedia guest review
You get what you pay for... Great for being cheap. Food decent drinks water down but unlimitedGenuine Expedia guest review
Close to shopping, the clubs in the party zone, easy transportation, and the best beach. It has a wonderful beach and restaurant close to beach. Wonderful place for relaxing and perfect for families. Everyone is friendly and you don't have to follow a dress code. Renovation in last year. Cheapest all inclusive fee in the hotel zone. New photo stand […] to send pictures to your friends.

"Don't pay for the all inclusive"
Hotel good for a cheap place to stay, not worth it to pay for the all inclusive, the street food was cheaper and betterGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location same beach as the 4 Star Hotels"
Look, if your willing to do without the splendor of a 4 star hotel then this hotel offers the same beach as the pricier hotels. I ate breakfast and dinner at restaurant called Tacun which is walking distance from the hotel. They have a Mariachi band at night which is nice. I would consider this hotel in the future but will book my next trip to Cancun […] far enough in advance that I can stay at my preferred hotel, the JW Marriott. The JW is just a worl apart from the experience you get at Flamingo. But as I said, your on the same beach at the Flamingo and the hotel is very close to the night clubs.

"cute boutique hotel"
the overall experience of the hotel was positive, except for one of the two restaurants on the premises. Albatras only seats by reservation only EVEN if you are a hotel guest. i found this to be very disturbing being that my friend and I were out the whole day on a tour and wanted eat some decent food when we got back that night. instead of accompdating […] us we had to go outside of the hotel to eat. we paid for the all inclusive package and were not able to use it that day. the other restaurant serves buffet style with less than decent food.

"centrally located and comfortable"
The overall experience was good. The room was great, we had a street view but on 5th floor so not bad. Room was very basic. No fridge, no microwave etc. but we were never there... bed was stiff but tolerable, pillows were a different story... like sleeping on a rock... layout was good although swim up bar was very limited seating. lots of kids in the […] pool so family friendly but not so for couples... Food was great! Breakfast although had its challenges with service (waiting for coffee) seating.. especially on weekends was exceptional. The chef making the omelets was great and food delicious for most part. Dinner we ate dinner in the Albatros every night. The "captain" Arturo was very accommodating and kept his staff busy. Our waiters Martin and Carlos were amazing and there with no problems when needed. I believe the runners name was Ferdinand. definitely worth the reservations you had to make in morning. bartenders, Jorge, Eric and Ismael were great and entertaining. The choice of wine and Liquor was definitely bottom shelf. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Our 25th anniversary"
Great hotel for the price, close of everything, clubs, shops,bars and a great beach acces The personal was friendly. We are an outdoors couple so we don't stay in the hotel during the day but when we comeback very late at night, we like to have a clean, comfortable and safe place to sleep and relax. Flamingo hotel was all this for usGenuine Expedia guest review
"our 25th aniversary"
flamingo is a great hotel in the midle of everything-bars,restaurants, clubs, etc. we are outdoors couple so we dont stay in the hotel all day, its nice to have a clean place to go back at night to take a shawer and eather go to sleep or just keep going to enjoy the wonderfull night life of cancunGenuine Expedia guest review
"Location is the only good thing about it"
This was my 10 yr anniversary and second time coming to Cancun. The first time we stayed at the Grand Oasis, I wished we had booked there again!! This has taught me a valuable lesson!! Believe the reviews that I read. I'm not by any means a fancy person so when I say that it wasn't worth it, believe me!! I will not recommend this place to anyone unless […] you want cheap service. The all inclusive was so not worth it. The balcony was barely big enough for the small chairs, you would have to sit sideways to fit. The location is the only thing that was worth the money. The dining staff was so rude!! The breakfast was the only thing good to eat. The alcohol was watered down the snack bar at the pool was a waste!! Please do not book this place.

"Fantastic room, ocean view and delicious food!"
it was really nice to be there, staff absolutely kind, i asked for changing my "expedia room" for an ocean view which was fantastic. Nice beach, close to Cancun centre, we loved this place.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quick check-in, room was available at 1230pm"
Issue we had was with the reservation with expedia. The hotel could not determine that we had purchased the all inclusive package. It took sometime and luckily had the paper work and receipt to prove it. The could open a bar at the second pool which would make it a much better hotel. Food was good at the buffet and excellent at the main restraunt, Albatros. […] Drinks were also best at Albatros. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This is the first review I have ever written. I don't expect a lot from most hotels. The food at this hotel was absolutely unbearable. They did not get a room key to us for the first 2 days because they ran out. So each time we wanted to get back into the room we had to go to the front desk to have someone escort us. Do not stay here.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel in the Hotel Zone in Cancun"
The Flamingo hotel is medium sized and has 2 nice pools. The beach area and chairs are very convenient and nice. We were greeted by friendly front desk staff and got into the room with no issues or delays. The hotel has 2 restaurants and 1 bar. We found the food at the pool bar to be average at best. We were not on the all-inclusive plan so we didn't […] sample much of the hotel food. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to the beach"
Hotel room was clean and nice size. Staff was friendly and helpful. Hotel is across the street from Margaritaville, Bubba Gump Shrimp and a souvenir mall. A 5minute bus ride or 15minute walk to the nightlife.Genuine Expedia guest review
"I got just what I paid for."
The resort is small but it offered all the amenities of the larger resorts with less people. The presentation of the buffet was perfect. A variety for each pallet. Convient to a little mall.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Id say this is a 2 star hotel!!"
Food was repetitive drinks are watered down and no activities around the resort! Plus it needs some updating. The staff was okGenuine Expedia guest review
"Please read this review!!!!!!"
So excited to go to Cancun to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. What a disappointment the Flamingo Cancun Resort is. This "resort" is nothing but a rundown, deceiving, boring cheap hotel. Toilet doesn't work, air doesn't work, doors drafty which lets hot air in. You can hear everything through doors and walls. All inclusive here doesn't include […] room service, fridge in room, or top shelf liquor. No entertainment of any sort. No music or dancing of any sort, if you want music by the pool, you must wear headphones. We are the type of people that read reviews and always give benefit of the doubt.. Please read every bad review and believe it. We will say most of the staff were very nice, food average, pool nice, and beach beautiful. Nothing else positive to say.

For the most part the stay was ok, but when we first arrive at 6:30 in the morning it was horrible. They had told us when we first book that our room would be ready for us when we got there, but it wasn't ready till almost 2pm. The morning staff was very rude about it and said that we just had to wait till check in time which was till 3pm, then the […] next shift just kept giving us the run around. The only thing that made it better was beach view, which I had requested but did not get. The hotel is very small and most of the staff was friendly, specially the night shift front office guy. He was always so helpful and friendly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very enjoyable stay"
This location is a resort, and was very safe. The "smack on the beach" location makes it a fantastic choice for beach lovers. The all-inclusive package was very good, and guests staying there commented that it was very comparable to other resorts. Very nice, new room. Would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Terrible Spring Break Hotel!"
Me and a couple of my buddies stayed at the Flamingo over March 17th-24th, 2014 for our spring break. The hotel facilities weren't all that bad. The beach was clean, the ocean was blue and even beds were layed out outside. However, if you're on spring break, go somewhere else! I know people who stayed at the oasis, Krystal and Riu and they were packed […] with beach parties and daytime activities. But not flamingo! I surprisingly met a bunch of 50+S straying there as well which felt weird. We tried the food at one of the restaurants but it wasn't all that great for the price we paid(we did the European plan so it wasn't all inclusive). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The reviews had me contemplating a move before I got there. That would have been a BIG mistake the place is great. Must have ocean view! You need to plan on spending time in Mexico and not just the resort, but at the value it's the best option I can imagine. Staff was great. Please tip they appreciate it and deserve it. Food was great. No complaints. […] You get what you pay for in most of the reviews is not a negative comment! Because you get that and much more! Your attitude will determine your experience in that there are minor issues that could have become bothersome (no keys to my room for first few days) but bell/security let us in at all hours as needed. Recommended. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"nice hotel not many activities"
fun great all inclusive stay the food was a little iffy but unlimited drinks & the staff was very friendly. not many activities from the hotel for spring break kids but deftinaltey worth itGenuine Expedia guest review
The Hotel was nice and the Staff. When we got to the room we had no towels to take a shower. I called and told the Hotel Staff we had to wait almost two hours and our shower door did not work at all. Other wise the food was good.Genuine Expedia guest review
I had the worst experience with this hotel. My flight was delayed and ended up not making it until the next day, at 10 am. Just enough time for me to shower and leave. They wouldn't even let me use the room. They treated me awfully. Wouldn't even let me speak to a manager, whom I could see from the lobby. ruined my day!!! Would never ever stay here […] !!!

"good location, great value - Spring Break"
Had a great stay at the Flamingo for Spring Break - got upgraded to a deluxe ocean view room (they tried to offer it to us at a price but when we declined they gave it to us anyway at check in). Compared to some of the street view rooms it really was a lot nicer. We went all inclusive - food was great for what we paid, always something that satisfied. […] Drinks were tasty but very watered down, and the bartenders are in no rush to serve you unless you're flashing money as a tip for them. Good location - bus runs from right outside the hotel to the downtown area. It's also pretty close to the airport. The hotel is on the beach and sun loungers are provided. You also get towel tokens at check in so we were able to get fresh beach towels every day if we wanted to. Housekeeping was great too, came in every day and replaced the towels - they also organized our stuff if we'd left it messy! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Flamingo Hotel, Cancun Mexico"
This hotel is a good option if you are planing to visit Cancun and not spend a lot of time at the hotel. The food is good, good staff service. My only concern was the A/C at the room which was not working and the offered me three more rooms that were in the same condition, no A/C. But this is not the case in all rooms for we were a party of eight, using […] four rooms in total and all other rooms had good A/C, I guess I was out of luck. it is not a luxury hotel but it is a great option if you trying to save some money on hotel accommodations. It is very close to all the "disco" area and markets. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Paid for the best room available, did not even get that room or any type of refund. Friends didn't even get a room the first night, due to over-booking and had to stay in my room. Food was decent, pool was small. Drinks were all watered down. Staff was usually very nice, with a few exceptions. Good location, and nice beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice stuff.. Not very nice hotel"
The positive thing about this hotel is that the beach is beautiful and at it is walking distance , they have cabanas which is great .. The hotel stuff very friendly always helping us out very polite.. The hotel itself .. The floors Are awful it gets very sticky with the humidity and the heat and the beach.. The pool is very nice .. Overall it was okay.. […] I was promised a king bead and ended up with two full beds.. My boyfriend and I didn't fit so basically we slept on separate beds all trip long.. Not the deal .

"Perfect hotel for young travelers"
The hotel is perfect for young travelers. The rooms are fine and clean. The staff is very nice and most of them speak English. You get your drink at the bar in the lobby or at the poolbar, which is very nice. Also the food is okay, they have fries, burgers, noodles, salad and bread but also some other stuff. The hotel is direct on the beach and you […] can get to the clubs by bus pretty easy and cheap. All in all we had a great time! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Expect what you pay for!"
The hotel was fine overall...but don't expect much from the experience. It has drinks, food, a pool and the beach (obviously) but they are all mediocre at best. Our air conditioning went out our third day there and they didn't fix it for the next four days. They were rude and inconsiderate every time I tried to ask them about the situation. They moved […] other guests to other rooms and didn't want to do the same for us because I hadn't yelled enough... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice cheap hotel with a nice atmosphere"
Everyone at the flamingo hotel is so friendly, the staff & vacationers too. The food is sometimes better one day than others but the soup is always pretty good. The bartenders remembered my drink after the first day, which is awesome. A good, friendly hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Is a really comfortable place to stay"
Love the different options of food. It was great that they have a staff person in charge to entertain the kids doing crafts. Games Ask about it !!!! They hotel has toys for the sad for the kids.Genuine Expedia guest review

"3rd time is NOT A CHARM!!!!!"
Checked-in 3-04-14..Room 306. This was our 3rd stay at this hotel and will NOT be back. I booked a Deluxe Room,All Inclusive,with a private Lounge. The Check in lady tells me that the word LOUNGE means LAGOON...aaaa NO! I had to be a dictionary for 20 mins. We will gladly pay for an Ocean view..Si.. none available..what about a suite..no..I will downgrade […] you to a Standard Room with an Ocean View with no price difference. Its this or nothing.Can I talk to your manager..not here. Get to the Room..change clothes and find out that the plumbing has a problem,no fridge, no clock.I go back to the desk. Sorry , you agreed to the downgrade. I tried Daily to contact a Manager or Assistant Manager 3 times a day at different times and even left Notes to contact me on the conditions of the room and attitude of desk Staff . Did not see a improvement of plumbing or any Management during my 6 day stay. Its REALLY sad to see this Hotel go downhill in all aspects..Staff, Rooms, Food. They use to list Activities by the pool side..Didn't see a thing..or Activity Director...Music not allowed in pool area during the day,Pool area closes at 9pm and then Staff ignored the Music pool side at night along with screaming. Music should be allowed during daytime hours and enforce the quiet time after 9pm Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Nice hotel by the beach for the price. There are very nice hotels near by, but for the price you pay, you get a good deal. Pool is clean, staff is really nice, and food and drinks were not bad.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Smallish, wonderful hotel with AWESOME beach."
Just returned yesterday from a 6 day trip to this hotel. Been to Mexico and Caribean a number of times so have lots to compare to. Very nice hotel with pretty darn good food for once. We are a family of four. Two kids 18 and 21 and parents. We chose all inclusive and were very pleased with the variety and quality of food. Would not think that the food […] was very kid friendly though to those under about 14. They do have decent hot dogs and hamburgers and fries at the snack shack though. Al a carte restaurant is included in the all inclusive but you need a dinner reservation. Ambiance is really great and the place is clean with a very pleasant wait staff. All the bar drinks at each of the three bars were great. Plenty of alcohol and a good variety. I even had chocolate martinis that were top notch. We had two rooms, one with two double beds and one with a king. Both had good beds and good pillows. Air conditioning was a bit weird as it was always a damp cool but we were fine. The main floor where we were at was always loud so hopefully you can sleep through noise. Spring breakers were definitely partying. The best thing though was the beach and that is what I come for. HUGE white sandy beach that stretched forever. SUPER clear touquoise water that had nice waves to play in. Comfortable beach chairs and plenty of palm trees to get under for shade if you wanted it. Not a lot of activities to do, but I wasn't there for that. I was there to relax and it was super relaxing. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Probably my only complaint would be the walls were a little too thin. We could here people walking by the rooms all night. Other than that is was a great place.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel close to the beach"
The Flamingo is a nice hotel, clean, close to the beach. Is basic a little bit old fashion, but for the price you have a good location, and a nice beach. I didn’t try the food, I’m vegetarian so I rather go out for lunch or dinner. Overall was a nice experience and the staff was always willing to help for advice or information.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Food, Customer Service and Beach Access"
Pros of the Hotel: 1) Really delicious food (incl. natural fruit juices); 2) Excellent Customer Service (the staff was excellent!); 3) Great beach access; 4) The room was very clean; Cons of the Hotel: 1) The alcoholic drinks (they were disgusting! every drink had a very bad after taste and it didn't matter which drink you ordered!); 2) The hotel and […] the rooms are "dated" (could use a little paint on the exterior of the hotel and more updated decorations in the rooms to make it appear more modern); 3) The hotel room walls are paper thin (at night we thought people were walking into our room); 4) A Flamingo employee in charge of getting guests to participate in the hotel's Time Share Presentation (very aggressive each time he saw us about participating in a time share presentation on the 6th floor).
